Esky 8g vs towerpro 9g servos for T-REX?


Need 3 servos for cyclic on an HDE rex im building (my first rex) Yea i know, neither of these are really ideal, but im trying to just get in the air at this point, so which is the lesser of 2 evils? Or should i just suck it up and spend the extra $15 and get 3 futaba s3110's?

ok so i took the 3001 off my tail and held it next to the slots for the cyclic servo's, its too small, the holes dont line up... how do i mount them if thats what i get? What about eflight s75 servos instead? a tad slower, but they are the right size and price....

I had the S75's in my MX400 for a short while. They suck for this application. Go with the Hitec HS65's, 56's, or Futaba's and be done with it.

I use the towerpros. They have been great. Pretty quick and plenty strong. No glitching either. Just my .02

Also towerpro 9g here on a MX400 (TREX HEAD) with CCPM kit. No problems!!! HS81 for the tail with a GY240.

Anyone else using the 9g Towerpro servo's on the T-rex, i have them on my heli's head and a hs-56 for the tail with a gy-240. I have not flown my heli yet, it's a 450 ccpm

If you don't recomend them what would be the reason ?
(not precise enough, weak?)

C'mon someone must be using it on their CCPm t-rex

I'm starting out with an All plastic head, will i have proplems with these servo's, i just want to hover and do basic flying.

Will centering be something to worry about?
